Jan 23, Colombo: Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Sampath Dassanayake has surrendered to the Badulla Police station this morning through a lawyer, Police Media Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said.

He is to be produced before the Badulla Magistrate's Court today.

The Chief Minister is alleged of humiliating the principal of Tamil Girls School in Badulla by making her kneel before him and reprimanding her for disregarding an order sent by him to admit a student to a school.

The Ceylon Teachers Union demanded the authorities to arrest the Chief Minister for threatening and humiliating the principal.
